GAIN PROFESSIONAL RECOGNITION AND BOOST YOUR CAREER PROSPECTS
ISCO offers Professional Recognition in a profession that traditionally has not required high academic attainment but rather intuition, experience and skills only found by being on the job rather than only from a class room. ISCO has decided to do something about it for the thousands of spill response professionals globally active who until now have not had the opportunity to show their skills and professionalism in a comparable light to lawyers, accountants and engineers.
Follow the example of others who have already won professional recognition and gained the professional qualifications – AMISCO, MISCO or FISCO.
Students, apprentices and trainees can join ISCO as student members and pursue a career development path that, as qualifications and experience are gained, can lead to eligibility for Associate Membership (AMISCO), Membership (MISCO) and, eventually, Fellowship (FISCO) .
All who have the relevant qualifications and the required level of experience can apply for Professional Membership of ISCO.
The organization offers independent validation and integrity. Each grade of membership reflects an individual’s professional training, experience and qualifications. Academic qualifications are not a requirement if applicants can demonstrate the necessary levels of competence through their experience, skills and professional development.
You can learn more about Professional Membership if you visit the ISCO website at http://www.spillcontrol.org You can find more about the assessment criteria, code of conduct and other matters, and download an application form.
